missile defense shield. putin has the eu, a feckless eu abandoned defense budgets for the welfare state. how is the president going to rally the eu, which was a big point yesterday on the show. when we have the french sending vessels over to help the russian navy and the germans have shown no appetite to get involved. president obama has no cards to play. >> those mid-range weapons in europe were introduced by harold brown and jimmy carter in 1978 and 1979. you're right about the french, the feckless eu. >> at least carter canceled the olympics. president obama doesn't even have the guts to do that. he canceled, whaultd, the paralympics? >> i think it's a difficult position because they need this energy that russia gives them because there's no other way to give them. >> god forbid we would want to piss off the environmentalists. >> i'm not needed here. that was my point. a good point. so, okay, amazingly, bob turned this into a question of what is happening today to what did reagan accomplish? that was five minutes spent rehashing that. i'll also say one thing about reagan. he believed
story broke just after secretary of defense hagel had announced plans to scale back the american military. we're going to pick up the interview. i want to talk to you about the military budget that you outlined. you want to reduce the size of th army to the smallest size since before world war ii. how do you reduce the size of the american military without making it look like, to the people around the world, that we're somehow retreating, that we're withdrawing from all of this. >> you start, bob, with the reality of where we are in the world today. this budget that is the first budget in 12 years that's not a budget based on war footing. we've been at war for 1 years constantly. two wars. we're out of one war, iraq. and we're coming out of the longest war we've ever been, afghanistan. not unlike after every war the united states has been in, you reset your posture. you reset your assets. you reset your whole enterprise based on the new realities and based on preparing that institution for the challenges of the future. to answer your question, how do you adjust to the dangerous c
, they are backed up by civilian defense forces, and i think that's a real danger, because those people are unpredicted. the forces we have seen have been very disciplined. they have only a few strategically placed bullets in their weapons, and have been very calm, but the civilian forces tend to get very agitated, and they are alongside these military forces, so you have russians right at the door, and then civilian forces right in front of them, and when i tried to get into a base a couple of days ago, it wasn't the russians who stopped me, it was the ukrainians of russian decent. and there is a big divide between those two sides. >> jennifer we hear music in the background. what is the mood right now? >> reporter: well, you know, if you go around town, you can see i'm in sort of an touristry, entertainment area, and people by and large are trying to go out, and business and usual, but this is a navy town. one woman i spoke to yesterday, said her neighbor told her they are going to have to leave because her husband refuses to sign an oath to crimea. so there are deep divides among nei

screams the night reeva steenkamp was killed, followed by four gunshots. the defense tried to poke holes in the neighbor's story. >> just listen carefully to the question. the question was not that difficult. shall i repeat it again? please listen carefully. just listen to the question please. >> the defense went on to question the neighbor's credibility. >> you heard that out of a closed toilet and a half, 177 meters away? >> then in graphic detail, the defense explained steenkamp would not have been able to scream after the fourth and fatal shot. >> with the head shot, she would have dropped down immediately. when you say, when you talk about the screaming, whatever interpretation, after the last, it cannot be. >> as i stated yesterday, i heard her voice just after the last shot faded away. >> the defense claiming the screams that night were from pistorious. they say high pitched yells occurred after he realized he had accidentally shot his girlfriend of three months and not the intruder. prosecutors allege allege pistorious killed his girlfriend in a fit of rage and called two more ne
. strengthen nato's defense posture and impose costs on the putin government. broadly these are objectives most americans want to achieve right now but this particular circumstance i believe presents president obama with a fairly stark choice. ad-libbing was the term kim used. i would describe it as muddling through. he can either seek to mutt dell through this crisis or use it to articulate a broader vision of the role the united states should be playing and what we should be achieving through global leadership at this time. this is important because the russian invasion ever the crimean peninsula, is in my view symptommic of a role in which we see growing pressure against our allies, security partners, our friend in many areas and many regions simultaneously. would compare this moment perhaps to, once again kim mentioned the example of president carter facing the soviet invasion of afghanistan. would compare it both to perhaps president truman in 1947 looking at turkey straits crisis which was a very specific circumstance to which there were specific measures taken in terms of u.s. military a
. it is a surprise exercise of combat readiness. agoas planned a long time with the defense ministry -- they told me about it earlier. he had all the orders ready. exercise has been finished. yesterday, i ordered the troops to return to their military bases. what could trigger a possible use of military force? it is only an extreme case. the legitimate president requested russia to use the military force to defend the lives and health of ukrainians. --major concern is the situation that is happening. so many nationalists and radical rampant on the streets of kiev. the news media was chained on a square. handcuffed to some fixture. it was freezing cold. he was holed up in a basement and tortured. how do you define that? is this democracy? is this an expression of democracy? if all authorities are corrupt -- he has not been able to rob anything. there was none there. there was just one technical guide their -- there. i am an i.t. guy. could you let a woman out? he was shot dead right there. second i.t. guy was forced into the basement. he was burned alive. what we see that, we realize what the major c
of defense, chuck hagel announced this week, a new five year budget for the pent began that could reshape the armed forces. one, army cuts. the u.s. army is already scheduled to drop from today's active duty force of 5 hundred 22,000 troops to 492,000 next year. serve secretary--secretary hagel wants to bring the total to 440,000 troops by the year 2019, six years from now. it will be the smallest sized u.s. army in 75 years, which brings us back to before world war i i. here is secretary hagel on why. >> we are no longer sizing the force. >> that is called army speak. you figure out it. two, marine corp. cuts to 182,000. three, army national guard cuts from # 3-0 hundred 55,000 to- -from 355,000 to 335,000. four,s special operations up from 66,000 today to 66,000 because the forces are uniquely suited for the most likely missions of the future. five, the loser, the a10 wart hog tank killer plane. cold war era spy plain, retired. drone, unmanned aircraft, they are hot. four, six, military benefits reduced including cut backs for service persons tax free housing and heightened medical insu

governments are talking on a cabinet level today for the first time. and then there's a russian defense official discussing ukraine with nato members in brussels as well. of course, there's only one man who can make or break any deal. that's vladimir putin. it's just unclear what he will do next. talking about sending international observers. will putin allow them to go into crimea? we just don't know. now that putin controls crimea, that may be the new status quo, to remind everyone that ukraine's future depends on him. betty, back to you. >> a lot of variables here. jim, thank you. >>> back at home, there is a new political fight to tell you about. president obama's $3.9 trillion budget is now on capitol hill. the highlight is a massive expansion of the earned income tax credit. the 13.5 million more workers would be eligible for $60 billion in credits. also included is billions for roads and rails. it's spending, the white house says, will bolster the economy. but republicans say the president's budget is dead on arrival, complaining that it runs up the long-term national debt. >>> a
reservists, even as it admits the country can't match russia's firepower. ukraine's defense minister says russian soldiers converged on three military bases in crimea demanding ukrainian troops surrender and give up their weapons. the ukrainian soldiers did not and there has been no fighting between them. >>> president obama and russian president vladimir putin spoke over the phone for 90 minutes saturday. the u.s. says russia is breaking international law. russia says it's protecting its military personnel and citizens in crimea. in response to all of this, the united states, great britain and france are suspending their participation in preparation talks for the g-8 summit being held in russia in june. we're going to get a lot of perspectives on this, but we want to go first to ukraine's ambassador to the u.n. we'll also speak later to president obama he's former national security advisor and two top u.s. senators. >>> mr. ambassador, first of all, thank you so much for joining us. i want to ask you in response to a couple of breaking developments now. the prime minister now in ukraine
chuck hagel was nominated to be secretary of defense, i strongly objected based on his record as a senator, and some of his comments about our allies in the middle east that absolutely scared the living daylights out of me. my fears, they were not unfounded. as this week hagel proudly announced his proposal to further gut the military readiness of our nation by drastic troop reductions and cuts to our military families with housing, food, and family health care. for the past 100 years, presidents and our nation's top warriors have warned of putting our guard down. both democrat and republican presidents, from calvin coolidge to franklin roosevelt, to harry truman, to eisenhower, to reagan, reminded us that in a dangerous world, readiness to fight is the foundation of our freedom. the best military minds in our nation's history, from mcarthur to omar bradley to david petraeus, warned of lulling ourselves into the stupid stupor of thinking the world would be safer and more peaceful if we just holsterred our guns and sheathed our swords. it's folly to think such nonsense. the bes
and nothing happened. so the russian defense ministry said it didn't issue such an ultimatum, but the ukrainian defense forces said that they definitely received it. and journalists did report witnessing that ultimatum being handed to them. so, it's not quite clear who exactly is threatening whom, but the situation, you know, remains such that everyone is waiting for russia to play its hand and attack or not attack. >> what -- people in the area want or thinks, not the military but the people. >> i think ethnic russian community in crimea, which is the majority of the population on the peninsula, they are content to have the russian troops here protecting them from the new government that came to power in last month's revolution. however, they do not want any blood to be spilled. i think the minute that russia attacks any of the bases or kills any ukrainian servicemen, they will lose the support of the local population definitely. >> simon, if you will stand by, we will get back to you little later in the hour. thank you, simon. >> thank you. >> what should the united states
if they were russian soldiers that are not. he said those were local self-defense units. he even denies that they are russian soldiers there when we all know that that is the height of arrogance in my view. you saw the picture of those two sitting next to each other. have you seen the attitude that putin has towards the president of the united states. he doesn't respect him. >> so what are we going to do? it doesn't look like britain is going to go with us and germany is not going to go with us and western europe is so hungry for that oil that either originates in russia or comes through it or the natural gas. >> well, we are going to tell them they should be ashamed of themselves because you are right. but, we need to first help get ukraine back on its feet financially there. they're on the brink of collapse. second, make sure that we do everything possible to get mull dove have a and georgia into nato. third of all, we maybe need to do some military exercise with our small baltic state friends. we need to restate and start working on the missile defense system and the czech republic a
on the table. that's what secretary of defense, chuck hagel, delivered today. we are going to send an aircraft wing that's been in poland, a nato ally to the west of ukraine, that's going to be extended. the u.s. is going to send more aircraft to the baltic state, north of the ukraine, also nato allies. more aircraft there. he is going to convenient nato ministers to talk about the next step. you have the carrot and the stick. if this doesn't change, the situation on the ground doesn't change, costs are going to be imposed. at the same time, we are going to demonstrate our commitment to those nato allies. you see them there, the ones in green along ukraine's western poured der. . >> jim sciutto live and michael holmes, we do have some breaking news right now from capitol hill. as jim was saying, what is being most used right now, words and statements. diplomacy in this crisis. there are about to be some words and statements coming from the u.s. congress. >> our deirdra walsh just spoke with ed royce, chairman of the foreign committee in the house. he said tomorrow that committee will hold a vo
had to enhance the defense of the military facilities because they are constantly receiving threats and we were aware of the armed nationalist moving in. russia was well-trained, well-equipped 16,000 or more troops. and vladimer putin was worried about enhancing the defense of the military facilities because they were constantly receiving threats. there is something i would like to stress he says, it isn't within my authority and we don't intend to interfere, but we believe all citizens of ukraine should be given the same equal right to participate in the life of their country and determining their future. we are seeing justification for intervention and serious intervention in eastern ukraine. he takes a shot at the united states saying our partners in the united states formulate their own political interest and using the principle you are with us or against us, they draw the whole world in, and those that cannot join in get beaten until they do. he says our approach is different. we always act legitimately. i am not making this up. this is what vladimer putin said: i have been an
the russian troops adopted what they would see entirely as defensive positions and having their photographs taken with pro-russian local and smoking cigarettes in many places and have not had clips loaded on their guns and they have been, i think, at pains to point out they don't want to be seen as an aggressive force equally. by the same token the body language and symbolism from the ukraine troops this morning was equally passive and one was a soviet flag from the second world war saying they fought against fascism but are no longer but carried a ukraine flag and the implication of that is they want to be see potentially being on the russian side but won't surrender and will not swear allegiance to the flag and there is not resistance going on but a sense of defiance as well. >> reporter: lawrence, thanks for keeping us up to date with the events in crimea and we will keep a close eye on things there. russia appears to be moving more military assets to the region and russian war ships passed through in istambul and saying they may go to ukraine and they are in ukraine by a lesser sense o
. based on senate republicans' ardent defense of the koch brothers and the fact that they advocate for many of the same policies as the koch brothers, it seems my republican colleagues also believe in a system that benefits billionaires at the expense of the middle class. the koch brothers are willing to invest billions to tbhi buy that america. they're investing billions to buy that america. in 2010, the supreme court opened the floodgates of corporate money into locktorial politics -- into electoral politics. that was with the citizens united decision. since they can launder their huge contributions use being shadowy shell groups and so-called nonprofits, it is difficult to tell exactly how much they've invested so far. investigative reporting by some of the most respected news outlets in the country has revealed that the koch brothers funnel money flew a web of industry groups -- through a web of industry groups that are immune from disclosure rules such as the club for growth, heritage, a n.r.a., and the the united states chamber of commerce. we may never, never know how much m
the case in arizona, businesses to use religion as a defense in a private lawsuit. so to give you an example of how that might play out, you know, let's say you live in a state where it's illegal to fire someone because they're gay. now, if one of these bills passes, that company could turn around and say, oh, hey, i think homosexuality is a sin, therefore i'm going to fire you and i don't need to abide by this law. so, you know, that lawsuit provision is a big deal. >> i know in some of the cases, in some of the states where they've been considering this, the lawsuit provision works in such a way not only can you not sue somebody for discriminating against you, but if you do, you have to pay their legal fees as well as your own so it's almost a punishment for even complaining about being discriminated against. it's fascinating stuff and fast-moves story. dana lieblson, reporter for "mother jones." nice to see you. >> thanks for having any. >>> the federal prosecutor's investigation of the george washington bridge scandal in chris christie's new jersey has taken a turn today. we'v

, was to enhance the defense of our military facilities because they are constantly receiving threats, and we were aware of the armed nationalists moving in. now, russia has well-trained, well-equipped, now additional 16,000 or more, and vladimir putin was worried about enhancing the defense of his military facilities because they were constantly receiving threats. there is something i'd like to stress, however, he goes on to say. obviously, what i am going to say now is not within my authority, and we do not intend to interfere. however, we firmly believe that all citizens of ukraine, i repeat, wherever they live should be given the same equal right to participate in the life of their country in determining its future. my friends, we are seeing justification for intervention and serious intervention in eastern ukraine. so he goes on to further questions, and then he goes on to take a shot at the united states, saying our partners, especially in the united states, always clearly formulate their own geopolitical and state interests and follow them with persistence, then using the principle -- quote
by pro-russian forces. if you are referring to the self-defense forces, we don't have any power over them, they don't cake our orders. however, the russian military are in their deployment places and some special alert and control measures have been taken over the whole black sea fleet. that being said, we do do anything to prevent bloodshed. >> reporter: this is a chance not only for the west to talk directly to the russians, but also for the ukrainians to do so. >> we're doing everything to bring russia and ukraine in to direct contact with each other and make sure the governments are talking to each other, which the russians have not been willing to do at a senior level in recent days. >> reporter: all of this suggest there is a willingness for dialogue. russia considers the new russia in kiev ill legitimate, the southwest going out of its way to help that government. >> the package combined could bring an overall support of at least 11 billion euros over the next couple of years from european budget and the financial institutions. it is designed to assist the new ukrainian government.

abandoned our missile defense agreements with them to protect europe from a rogue missile coming out of the mideast. russia backed obama down. if i were president obama, i would re-engage poland and the czech republic regarding missile defense. i would admit georgia to nato. i'd have a larger military presence in the balkans to nato members who are threatened by russia. i would fly the nato flag as strongly as i could around putin. i would suspend his membership in the g-8. become the g-7. the g-20 would become the g-19 at least for a year. every day he stays in the ukraine i would add to it. >> senator durbin, first to the question of why would putin care about this condemnation? he is much more interested in crimea than he is about what the united states thinks about him. >> candy, vladimir putin and the russians just spent $50 billion on this sochi charm offensive to try to redefine russia in the 21st century. that sochi charm offensive died on the streets of sevastopol. when he moved in thousands of troops days after the closing ceremony. he is trying to have it both ways. he wan
